Abstract:

U.S. Army Woodbridge Research Facility WRF is a former military communication center and research and development laboratory where electromagnetic pulse energy was tested on military and other equipment. The facility is presently inactive and in the process of being closed or transferred to another government agency as part of the 1991 Base Realignment and Closure BRAC list. This asbestos survey fulfilled a DOD policy requirement for an asbestos survey prior to property transfer. A total of 142 bulk samples were collected and later analyzed by polarized light microscopy, coupled with dispersion staining techniques to determine if any of the samples could be categorized as asbestos containing material ACM. Six of the 142 bulk samples collected were ACM however, none were friable or significantly damaged. No remediation of ACM was required. jg p.2
